Terra Consulting Group LTD. is experienced in building rain gardens in a variety of developments.
Here’s an example of rain garden that we designed in Columbia, Missouri. A rain garden is an example of storm water Best Management Practice or BMP.
BMP’s are used, and often mandated by jurisdictions, to control urban storm water runoff caused by new development.
A rain garden is a low lying planted area that accepts rain water runoff, and stores and filters it within the soil while it infiltrates back into the ground.
Rain gardens reduce the amount of runoff that enters the storm sewer system, which in turn cuts down on the level of pollution that enters our waterways, and helps to replenish groundwater.
